Went and saw that movie Promising Young Woman
and thought it was excellent – the whole thing, great
film. Sad film. Funny film. Brilliant film.
Was going to write a review – as a joke – saying that
Carey Mulligan was brilliant of course but what about
all the male actors. Why weren’t they getting a rave?
Unfair! Not cool! How’s that for equality? But I think
it was a good idea not to do that since I can’t really
justify two days on Twitter pointing out it was a joke
and having people tell me that, even so, it still sucks
and is a typically toxic move to make that sort of joke.
Also the internet’s patchy right now. So that would only
make things worse. It’d be like those stories in that
Jon Ronson book where he finds the people that got
cancelled on the internet by their own stupidity; jumped
on a flight, turned their phone off and arrived 10 hours
later to find out they were public enemy number one.
Fuck that eh. I spent the day doing housework instead.
